Running Through The Yellow


Its Easier Said Than Done
We Contradict When We Stress
Because We Expect The Worst
Yet Hope For The Best

We All Make Mistakes
But Miss interpret Consequences Given
To Understand The Powers Above Us
We Must Learn To Stop And Listen

While Mistakes Will Always Be Common
Like Disobeying Traffic Laws
We Must Understand It Is Only A Mistake
When We Learn Nothing From It At All

So When No One Comes Around
To The Lord We Plead Enough
But When God Signals Us To Slow Down
We Always Tend To Speed Up
